About this project

vivid green and sparkling crystals - it reminds me of absinthe!

I'm getting ready to make a feather hair piece for my wedding, and since I don't have a lot of experience working with feathers, I thought I would play with some and see what happened. I liked making my last boutonniere so much, I started out with that general idea in mind, but the finished product could actually be used a lot of different ways.

I could put it on a pin back and use it as a brooch or a decoration for an evening purse, mount it on an alligator clip and wear it as a hair piece, add it to a hat, put it on a headband, use it as a boutonniere or corsage, etc.

I had fun practicing hand-trimming feathers oh-so-carefully, and adding crystals to wire sprays. It was good practice for my bridal hair piece!
